lines for gas. we're talking two hours plus in some areas. richard lui is live in richfield, new jersey. how are things looking there, richard? >> reporter: it reminds a lot of people of the '70s here. some estimates have it up to 50% of the gas stations in new york state as well as new jersey are not open right now. this line goes through two towns. it is about 60 cars deep. takes you about two hours to get to the gas station and finally be able to fill up your tank. there's some questions at the moment about gouging. in fact, the head of the division of consumer affairs was saying some gas stations have raised their prices by 20 to 30%. however, you look at aaa right now. prices are actually down by 5% to $3.55. one of the saving graces it here, if you have a car that is run by diesel, go to the front of the line and ask them if they have a separate line for diesel. you'll get to the front. >> all right. good to know. real quickly, i see a police officer there. people behaving themselves? this is very frustrating, i'm sure. >> reporter: it is. they're saying they're just trying to kee
's richard lui joins us. there again, another line. what are people telling you there, richard? >> reporter: hey there, tamron. you know what they're saying is when can we get some gas? this line is so long, it is two towns long, it's that far. 60 cars, we walked it earlier today. if you were to try to get in that line, it would take you two hours to get through it. and as you drive, you'd pass by one empty gas station. the reason why they're empty, because they ran out of gas, or they don't have electricity. if they don't have electricity, they can't get gas. i spoke to some of these folks in line earlier. could be three hours now. this is what they told me. >> we need gas because it's backed up. >> we needed gas. >> it will probably be two, three hours. >> reporter: two or three hours is what you're waiting for? you think you might run out on the way? >> i'll push it. >> my car is stranded over on 69th street. i have no way to get it. everybody around there has no gas. my friend just called me on his way to work and said this guy is open so i jumped on my bike and flew down here. >> repor
that people and calmer minds prevail here. >> indeed. richard lui in ridgefield, new jersey, thank you. >>> one positive, timing of sandy struck right as the new fiscal year was just beginning. that means fema's coffers are full. there's $7 billion congress appropriated for disaster fund, plus another billion left over from 2012. that should last fema through the end of the year, but with sandy expected to cost upwards of $60 billion, the odds are that congress is going to have to allocate more this winter. plus, if washington doesn't strike a deal to avoid the sequester cuts january 1st, that fiscal cliff thing, fema will take a $900 million hit. so what does all this mean? nbc's mike viqueira is back at the white house. any word from the white house on this? >> reporter: well, i mean, the short answer to your question, steve, is we don't know. and this may not surprise anybody, but it depends on who the occupant of this building is going to be come january 21st. i mean, there are a couple competing different plans out there. remember, the fiscal year, as you pointed out, always start

.s. economy into recession unless congress does something about it. >> wow. richard lui is here. we've been talking about what no deal would mean and the consequences could be dire. >> yes, chris. the fiscal cliff clock ticks on. 53 days to go. if january 1st arrives and washington fails to compromise, experts warn of an economic cataclysm. by the end of next year, unemployment could jump to 1.9% said the congressional budget office. that's almost 2 million more people without jobs. the economy would tumble at a rate similar to 2008's great recession. as much as 4% says goldman sachs. the average household's taxes would rise $3,500, all but a tenth of u.s. households would pay higher taxes. to stop that from happening, washington needs to stop what appears to be good, a plan forged over the last two years to reduce the deficit. at the base of what's being called a drastic plan, letting bush-era tax cuts expire. that leaves $221 billion in the government covers. as i mentioned, at the cost of higher taxes for almost everyone. what's being called sequestration, that reduces costs by $65 billi

>>> very good morning to you. i'm richard lui. chris jansing is away this morning. president obama seems ready for a fight over what happened in libya and the fiscal cliff. a confident commander in chief took to the podium at the first news conference since his re-election. he pushed back on suggestions that his security team mishandled what happened in libya and defended ambassador susan rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >>. >> and the president drew a line on taxes saying revenue must come from people who make over $250,000. >> what have i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> i want to bring in a columnist for the "washington post." good morning. let's start with you.
, what might it look like? richard lui is here. >> medicare is a very popular program. but according to reporting from nbc's tom costello, it's also more than 13% of all federal spending. and it's growing unsustainably. one cost cutting idea is to slowly raise the age limit to receive benefits. now it's 65. this is what retirement planners need to consider. let's say mr. and mrs. brown living on any street usa both turn 65 next year. they are unlikely to be affected and still can get medicare coverage. but if we walk next door, mr. and mrs. gonzalez could see a change. they are 60 years old and under current proposals, they would wait to 65 plus several months on top of that. farther down the street, the changes could have a longer coverage gap to fill. they are a55 and could wait untl 66 or 67 or older. it could save money, but it just shifts costs to private insurance or employers in a less efficient way. >> we want to see improvements that actually lower health care costs, not simply change them, make seniors pay more for health care. >> now, one proposal could make seniors pay mo
with flooding, power outages and shortages of food and water. nbc's richard lui is live on staten island with more on that. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, carl. some of the residents here saying it's the forgotten borough and we're standing on mansion street right by long series of marinas here ande he s ter was just in her home trying to get out some of other valuables but she saw several yachts sitting right in front of her yard, in front of her driveway. some of the concerns are once you get into the homes is the diesel because out there they had diesel tanks that are now in here. i'm going to show you this over here to my right. this is mansion street. these two yachts, including the bella vita, if you can see that, blocking off the street. it only goes down for at least a mile. you can't even tell where the maria was and where land starts and ends. it's that strange. this 40-foot yacht right here, the keel, i don't know if you can see this, but it got pushed across and it rakes across the very pavement here. the winds and the water from hurricane sandy just
